Altiplano Puna super volcano demonstrates intimidating activity

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists continue to study the volcanic complex Altiplano Pune, which is located in the north of Chile. It is noted that the supervolcano has been showing frightening activity for a long time.

The supervolcano is located under the Andes, in the zone where the thickest layer of the earth’s crust is. This feature is explained by eruption products that regularly come out through the faults over millions of years.

It is important to note that the eruption of the Altiplano Puna can cause massive death of animals and even people. As geologists found after analyzing lava samples, the volcano is constantly fueled by fresh magma.

According to Valentin Troll, the last time a powerful eruption occurred 4 million years ago, now the volcano is in a state that looks like a sensitive dream. Each time 500 thousand cubic meters. meters of magma rise to the surface, cool and then fall, providing the way for a new “portion” of hot substance.

A powerful eruption can begin at any time. People do not have developments that could protect them from such a threat. The eruption of the Toba volcano 73 thousand years ago led to the fact that about 2,000 people remained on the planet. Our story then could end. Today, people need to prepare for new possible disasters.
